Mural in Gaza to commemorate journalist Shireen Abu Akleh


Several artists in Gaza painted a mural in commemoration of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh who lost her life yesterday while covering events in Jenin camp.

Artists used their brushes and colors to express condemnation towards those who target journalists on duty. Artists demand the International Community to take responsibility for protecting journalists everywhere, ensuring their rights according to international laws and enabling them to practice journalism freely.

The mural is a painting of Shireen Abu Akleh next to a press helmet along with a painting of her colleague looking shocked unable to grasp the situation during the first moments after Shireen’s killing. The backdrop of the mural is Shireen’s beloved Jerusalem, where she covered events daily.
